Numbers, my opinion and a MDL review:

This movie is not well known; only approx. 500 MDL’ers watched this, where 24% scored this movie a 10, 24% a 9 and 26% a 8.

I loved how the movie was shot in different perspectives of the characters. It kept me on my toes and the whole movie was a thrilling ride. There were loads of special effects and I was afraid that those would be horrible, but they made it really realistic!
